Visage Salon open by appointment during COVID

Dear Friends,

We missed you these past couple of months. Now that the salon has reopened by appointment we want you to be as safe as possible and we ask that you follow the recommendations below, mandated by the state for creating a safe environment for yourself and our stylists.

You must wear a mask in order to enter our salon. If your appointment is for color, please plan to bring an additional new disposable mask if you have one, and if you do not, we will make every attempt to have one available for your purchase, while supplies are available to us.

We recommend that you bring a storage bag (ziplock plastic bag) to safely place your own personal face mask inside of while at the salon if you plan to wear a disposable mask for color appointments. That way you may exit Visage with your own face covering back on once your hair is gorgeous again!

Please plan on taking a shower with a full shampoo at home prior to your arrival at Visage.

Upon your arrival at our salon we will ask you to immediately wash and sanitize your hands before your appointment begins.

We also ask that you plan on refraining from handling or using your phone during your appointment with us.

Due to COVID19, MASS policy recommends that you come alone for your appointment as at this time we cannot accept additional guests.

Please call us from your car before coming up to the salon so that we can be sure that your stylist’s chair is clean and ready for you.

Visage salon is working hard to comply with all state regulations to ensure your safety as we reopen our doors. None of this is easy for our stylists and we understand how inconvenient these policies may be for you, but at least it allows us to once again provide you with the hair care you need.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Dear clients. If you are looking for something that will help protect your hair from heat and UV rays this summer try the Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil. It will also soften the hair, repair ends, and adds shine to the hair. You can use it on dry or wet.B1G_250x430

Think I’ll call it the Picasso…


I was visiting the Museum of Modern Art in New York recently and had to photograph this Picasso sculpture. I’m always on the lookout for ideas that inform hair design and styling. Not sure this one will fly, but it was a lot of fun to think about…

Put away that hair drier with ‘Don’t Blow It’ from B&b


B and B has a new creme for your hair called Don’t Blow It to be used on days when you want to avoid heat styling. It is a first-of-its kind product formulated to give you a beautiful air-dried look with a product free feel. This is accomplished by combining polymers with plant-based conditioners that enhance texture and body, producing a lightweight, touchable finish.

To use, simply work into towel-dried hair by squeezing or twisting.


Making waves with ‘Surf Infusion’ from B&b


B&b has just added to its Surf product line, Surf Infusion, blending tropical oils and sea salts that together help you create a wavy sea-tossed look with sheen. It can be applied anytime for soft, touchable waves. Excellent for dry and course hair on days when you want to avoid heat styling.

To apply, shake well to blend the salt and oil bi-phase formula, then spray evenly on to damp or dry hair. Focus mainly on the mid-lengths to ends, then style and let dry. For more volume, diffuse the application. Surf Infusion works well together with Surf Spray when that product is applied to the roots.

Tips for thicker hair

Here at Visage Salon we just wanted to share some tips we have picked up along the way towards obtaining Thicker Hair.

If you are looking for a product that helps with a family history of hair loss, you should try to find a product with minoxidil. At Visage we carry Bosley shampoo, conditioner, and thickening treatment that have minoxidil.  We also carry the Bosley oral dietary supplements for women which are recommended for healthy hair.  It is also recommended that you use minoxidil and an oral supplement together.  You can also try to find products that have other ingredients like biotin or silica (a strand strengthener).

Also, since we are a Bumble and Bumble salon we recommend trying the Bb Thickening collection. The Bb Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner are great for a day to day rinse but also you should try the Bb Thickening Hairspray and Bb Full Form Mousse. Both the Bb Thickening Hairspray and Bb Full Form Mousse work best when you put them on wet hair and then blow dry. It really amps up your hair giving it that full blown look.  Have fun!
